Education Week is a celebration of community. The school is not just a building in the neighbourhood, it is the foundation of the community. The first Alberta School Week (Education Week) was held December 2–8, 1928. Now, Education Week is from April 15-19, but the purpose remains the same. Education Week celebrates the importance of education and the remarkable things happening in Alberta schools.

Education Week is an excellent opportunity to:

  • Illustrate the important role that schools play in communities
  • Assure taxpayers that public funds are being put to good use
  • Invite the public into classrooms for first-hand experiences
  • Highlight the partnership between teachers, parents and students
  • Celebrate the contribution that all staff and volunteers make in the school.

Learning Uplifts All

Education week is a great time to celebrate public education and work toward an inspired future that includes:

  • Optimal learning conditions for every child
  • Creative and innovative learning programs
  • Students who enjoy learning and who achieve their learning goals
  • Parents and communities that are involved and supportive of learning
  • School leaders who are also teachers
  • A well-thought out curriculum delivered by well-prepared professionals
  • Opportunities for teachers to continue developing their skills as professionals
